Music | Family Friendly | Outdoor


Originally from Southeastern Wisconsin, I've called Rochester home since 2012. Though most of my music effort in the Rochester area has been through creating music events and promoting other artists, I'm thrilled to shift gears. In 2024, I'm embracing more live performances and connection with others through the music experience. When not playing solo, I'm rocking out with my band Backup Sound System, belting out '90s classics.

Music on the Plaza brings live music to the Peace Plaza, encouraging passers by to linger longer in this community gathering place, and increase the vibrancy of Heart of the City. Enjoy the music of local artists over weekday lunch and happy hours, and Friday night concerts on the Kahler Grand stage.

This program is presented by Rochester Downtown Alliance with support from Mayo Clinic and Winona State University, Rochester. The series is coordinated by John Sievers and Threshold Arts.
